Breaking Up is Hard To Do, But I’ll Get Over Him

18 November 2006

It was just before Valentine’s Day and a friend of ours was feeling a bit low. She had just split up with her boyfriend of several years and the holiday for lovers was just around the corner. She would be alone. Attempting to cheer her up, I said “you know, what you need is our ‘Breaking Up is Hard to Do, But I’ll Get Over Him Package’ “. She said, “Do you really have such a thing?” 

Well we didn’t, but thinking quickly, I assured her we did and thus was born the soon-to-be promotion. I had heard that gals loved to eat ice cream when they felt depressed; that there was a new book out about how the male functions emotionally; and later I drew ideas from my Innkeeper/best friend wife (since I am a guy and what do I know about women).

The now popular package is the cure for those “getting over him” and is dedicated to stories of break-ups, split-ups, separations, parting of ways, detachments, divorces, etc. that were bittersweet, dreadful, heavyhearted, saddening, and even tragic.

How long does recovery take? We figure with the right tools and professional help, about one long weekend in the City that Care Forgot! So, check out the details at Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast, grab a platonic friend to keep you company and come on down for some relief that’s a whole lot cheaper than your shrink’s couch!

Here’s what’s included:

Three nights in a double double, two full-size beds accommodation with private bathroom and modern amenities, continental breakfast and free parking (boutique single queen accommodation may be substituted)
